As you all know, the track crew gets to the tracks early in the week to begin getting things ready for race day. The first part of the week was good, but as the week went on I started to get concerned. Then Friday night a heavy mist begin to fall, the mist turned to rain, then back to mist. but the mud had been created. You can''t imagine how much and hard it rained Saturday night after the race, unbelievable! Those who raced loved it! Some have posted that it was their "funniest" race ever. Ask Senior Quad rider Kenny Hemmings what he thought about the track.
The next race is on May 4 at Harris Bridge in Woodruff. There is plenty of level parking with gravel roads. The trails are rideable, rain or shine. We will be going down early next week to start preparing the track. I will post something on the forum about the track as it comes together.
Good luck to all the Mideast riders who will be traveling to the GNCC race this coming weekend. It is such an amazing since of pride to see our series represented by some many riders each week. You are an amazing group of riders and I am proud that you race Mideast.
Many of you who have raced the Mideast Series for sometime will know Lester Partlow. Lester raced with us for many years but has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. I ask that you lift him and his family up in prayer as they battle this horrible illness.
Enjoy your week!!! See you May 4th at Harris Bridge!!
